Hands on Sailing Adventure aboard the American Rover

11am – 12:30pm
$12 per person

Looking for a fun, unique family outing? Try our hands on sailing adventure cruise. This is our popular Field-Trip program but open to the public.  On board you will have chance to set the sails, steer the ship and see all the tools the captain uses to navigate.  There is also a  knot-tying station and below deck you will learn about the history of ships and sailing. As we cruise the smooth waters of the Elizabeth River and Hampton Roads Harbor we will see many sights and points of interest including ship yards, cargo terminals, the Battleship Wisconsin, Old Fort Norfolk and much more.  On the waters of our bustling harbor we will also see navy ships, tug boats, and private yachts.

Children must be accompanied by an adult.
